Time Played

Chart displaying Garden of the Sea percentiles of time played for positive, negative, and early access reviews.

This chart displays the number of hours played in Garden of the Sea depending if the reviewer left a positive or a negative review. It also shows the reviews during Early Access. The time played is decent, reaching 12 hours in the 80th percentile.

The negative reviews play time is 6.1 times lower than the positive reviews median play time. When the negative review time is low (median : 62 minutes), it can be a sign that the game crashes on some systems or that players misunderstood the nature of the game (Does the Steam page clearly explain it, with gifs and a gameplay video ?). It can also mean that some players were somehow offended by Garden of the Sea and decided to review it and get a refund under 2 hours. The Players' feedback section might give some insight about that.
